How many connection can a user make?

Where do i check how many connection a same user name can make to a UNIX/AIX system.
for examples
root login from local physical machine
root login from LAN via telnet at the same time
root login from internet via telnet also at the same time..

where do i check and how do i change this ?

default maximum number of user logins supported on AIX 5.3 is 32,767 - and it doesnt matter if these are all different users or logins of the same user.

Kind regards
